doesn't work: I can not choose with a mouse tabs on the left. I've installed gnome-common but it gave no help.

Another example: AutoKey with gtk

What broken menu are you talking about? – RolandiXor Dec 8 '11 at 18:08
I cannot access other tabs! – Adobe Dec 9 '11 at 13:56
Does this only happen with gtk apps? Also, how have you configured the gtk theme? – scottl Dec 15 '11 at 0:38
Try to run from terminal, maybe some debug info appear when you try to switch tab – Вячеслав Логинов Dec 15 '11 at 7:46

It seems like its a theme issue, try:

sudo apt-get install lxappearance

I don't use KDE but I've seen a lot of problems with the KDE themes on 11.10
